They are doing two games at the same time basically : Star Citizen and Squadron 42.
Squadron 42 is the solo campaign and it's a Wing Commander with cutscenes, heavy narration, scripted events, etc etc. Just much more open that the games of old. It's supposed to be available in beta next year.
Star Citizen is the mmo sand box, and the base of it is the only thing the backers can play as of right now.
They share all of the tech / models / gameplay between them but the way you actually play them should be very different.
